Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - July 25, 1890, Burlington, Iowa iWMP.THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.)BURLINGTON, IOWA, FRIDAY MORNING,. JULY 25, lfiQp. (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK. TO EDUCATE THE RED HEN. The Indian Appropriation Passed in the House. Bill Work of the Catholic Church Among the Indians Disclosed in the Debate— The Bankruptcy Bill Passed in the Senate—Notes. of the republic, and asked in view of the respectable source from which it emanated, that it be printed in full in the Record. Mr. Sherman objected to printing it in the Record as unusual. Mr. Voorhees—The Alliance will take notice of the objection and where it came from. After an executive session the senate adjourned._ THE HOUSE. Washington, July 24.—In the senate with the vice president in the chair, Morgan introduced a bill to fix the limit of value and to provide for the free coinage of silver, and it was read and referred to the committee on finance. The bill recites that the market value of silver bullion is rapidly approaching the value of gold on the standard relation fixed by the laws of the United States and that there is no provision of law for the coinage of standard silver dollars or the purchase of silver bullion by the government when the value of silver exceeds one dollar for 371% grains of pur>-silver, it therefore provides that the of value in the United States shall be a dollar of 412% grains of standard silver or 258 8-10 grains of gold. That those coins shall be legal tender for all debts, public and private, and that any owner of silver or gold bullion may deposite it in any mint to be formed into dollars or bars for his benefit and without charge. The senate then resumed the consideration of the Indian appropriation bill. An amendment which provoked discussion was one increasing tile appropriation of ?IOO,OOO for the support of the Indian schools to 3150,000 including the construction of a school building at the Black Feet agency in Montana. Mr. Vest opposed the amendment as the introduction of a system intended to abolish denominational education among the Indians. He spoke of a visit he made to an Indian agency seven or eight years ago and of his observation of the work of the Catholic church in educating the Indians. A school building which had been erected by the Catholic church was standing unoccupied because the agent would not permit the Jesuits to teach any of the Indian children. The Jesuits had succeeded better than any other people living in the education of the Indians. Whatever prejudices he might have against the society of Jesuits, he had said that much as an educated Protestant. Mr. Davis also opposed the amendment and spoke of the efforts of the Catholic missionaries at Black Feet agency. These good people applied to those philanthropic ladies, Misses Drezel, of Philadelphia, and obtained 320,000, which they expended in a school building, recently completed. These men were now to be told, not only thai there was to be a government school put on that reservation In competition with them, but that they were to have no contract whatever for the education of the Indians, as had been plainly implied in the correspondence between the commissioners of Indian affairs and the persons in authority in the enterprise. Mr. Vest explained his position to be “that if Catholics were doing better in educating the Indians than the other denominations, he was in favor of the Catholics, and if the Presbyterians or Baptists were doing better, he was in favor of them. But he was convinced that the Catholics were far more efficient among the Indians than any Protestant denomination could ne. No other denomination could take their place, because the Indians, like all other people emerging from barbarism, had received religious impressions that were permanent. Ile did not care whether it might be called religion or superstition. The Indians were Catholics and would remain Catholics. There were some tribes, however, which had received from some peculiar personal intluences a direction toward some Protestant denomination. The discussion was continued by Teller, who also spoke of the Catholics as the most successful educators of the Indians; and by Jones, of Arkansas, who gave figures to show the great difference in expense between the government schools for the Indians and those carried on by religious denominations. He ridiculed the idea put forth by the commissioner of Indian affairs as to the necessity of high education for Indian children and said it was much more important for them to learn how to carry on farms, build houses and raise cattle. After further debate the amendment was agreed to. An amendment appropriating 325,000 for the erection of an industrial school near Flandreau, South Dakota, was agreed to; also, a like amendment for an industrial school near Mandan, North Dakota. The next amendments were to strike out two items, one of 38,330 for the support. and education of sixty Indian pupils at St. Joe’s normal school at Rensselaer, Indiana, and one of 312,500 for one hundred Indian children at Holy Family I dian school, Black Foot agency, y,->. tana. Mr. Dawes spoke of the relative large appropriation made for the Catholic Indian schools, the amount for 1889 being 3350,000, against 3120,400 for schools of aff other denominations. There wras a very efficient and urgent and active Catholic bureau of missions in Washington city, which was very earnest in pushing Catholic Indian schools on the government. The Indian bureau having declined to enter into the contract for three normal schools in Indiana California and Montana, this mission bureau had gone to the house and obtained the insertion of the item. The senate committee thought it would a1 low the item for the California school because it belonged to a mission which had been at work in southern California one hundred and twenty-five years. If he wished to discuss the differences between the Catholic and other schools, he would want no better object lesson than the difference between the mission Indians in the southern California and aggressive Cheyennes and Arapahoes. The mission Indians had been under the influence of the Catholic church one hun-dren and twenty-five years and were today as:incapable of self-support as so many babes. The committee on appro priations shrunk from doing anything that might awaken a regular discussion. That was why the committee recommended striking out the items for schools in Indiana and Montana. If they kept in the Episcopalians, Methodists and Baptists would say that they had not been fairly treated. At 2 o’clock the tariff bill came up as “unfinished business,” and was laid aside until to-morrow. After further discussion on Indian schools, a vote was taken and the amendments rejected—yeas 19? nays 27. So the items for the Rensselaer, Indiana, Banning, California, aud Blackfeet agency, Montana, are retained in the bill. Mr. Pettigrew offered an amendment appropriating 345,000 for the Santee tribe of Sioux, located at Flandreau, South Dakota, being an allowance of dollar an acre for the land to which they are entitled in the Sioux reservation agreed to. On motion of Pettigrew, an item of 330,000 was inserted for thirty school buildings for Sioux Indians; also an item to pay the Indians of Standing Rock and Cheyenne River agencies for ponies taken from them in April, 1876. On motion of Power, the item for school building in the Blackfeet agency Montana, was amended by fixing the limit at 325,000. The bill was then reported to the sen-|    ate and all the amendments agreed to by I    the committee of the whole were con |    curred in, and the bill passed# I:    Mr. Voorhees, by request the Labor II    Alliance, introduced a bill to secure the '!    constitutional rights and freedom of iv.    trade, speech and press, within the limits The Terry Bankruptcy Bill Passed With Unimportant Amendments. Washington, July 24.—After a short parliamentary wrangle, the house proceeded to vote upon the committee amendments to the bankruptcy bill. These amendments are principally verbal and informal in character. After they had been disposed of, an amendment was adopted enforcing the laws of the states, giving wages for labor the preference. A vote was then taken on the minority substitute which is known as the “voluntary bankruptcy bill.” This was dis-Te-t-ped to—yeas 74, nays }25. The Terry t kruptcy bill was then passed with un-itit • rtant amendments—yeas 117, nays 84. Adjourned. NO DANGER OF A WAR. Congr('Allien Belittle the Behring Sen Dispute. Washington. July 24.—The publication of the Behring -£ea~ correspondence causes no excitement or alarm here. Both participants in the correspondence, Mr. Blaine and Lord Salisbury, are complimented on the skill with which they parry each other’s thrusts, but that is about all the interest awakened by the mass of verbiage which was yesterday dumped into the house. The feeling most general in congressional circles is that the whole subject is too trifling a matter to threaten the peace of two powerful nations. When it comes to such a pass that the United States must confront a war with Great Britain in order to protect a private corporation like the North American Fur company in the enjoyment of its monopoly to catch seals on a couple of rocky islands off the coast of Alaska, then it is time the government hauls in its horns. And that it has done so is known outside of this mass of correspondence. When Sir Julian Paunce-forteon June 14, sent his message of warning that the British government would resent any seizure of British sealing vessels, it was’seen at once that the orders issued by the treasury department on May 20 to the commanders of our own revenue vessels must be revoked and they were revoked, as everybody knows, and there the matter rests. In the meantime negotiations are going ahead with a prospect that everything will be settled before the close of the year. GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. The President Visits an Encampment. Washington, July 24.—The president, accompanied by Secretary Proctor, Attorney General Miller, Postmaster Gen eral Wanamaker and General Schofield, Colonel Ernst and Captain Taylor, of the army, left here this morning on a special train to visit the encampment of the Pennsylvania National Guards at Mount Gretna.

Three People Killed Instantly and Others Wounded. Savannah, Ga., July 24. — W. I Bullard’s boarding house in this city, three-story dwelling, was blown up early this morning. Three persons were killed and a number more or less injured. There were thirteen people in the house. The explosion shattered the walls and they collapsed in an instant and fell in a mass of ruins. Most of the occupants of the house were asleep and were hurled from their beds and either buried under the failing debris or thrown on top of it. The killed are Mrs. W. J. Bullard, a Mr. Lockley and Gus Robie. The cause of the explosion is a mystery. Oil lamps were used, a1 though there were gas pipes throughout the entire house. There are many ru mors of an ugly nature but nobody will take the responsibility of making direct statement. One man insinuated there had been a row in the house toward the end of a jollification in which the inmates had been indulging. FELL INTO A CISTERN. A Little Boy’s Sad Death at Davenport, Iowa. Original Package Wagons—A Prominent Citizen Drops Dead at Altona—A • Disastrous Fire at Urbana— General Iowa News. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Davenport, July 24.—John Schocker, the four-year-old son of Henry Schocker, was drowned here this morning by falling into the family cistern. The little boy was standing on the platform of the cistern and was about to get a drink, when the plank that he was resting upon broke and let him through into the water. Help was near at hand, but all efforts to restore him to life were futile. It is thought that the boy’s head struck something as he fell and that lie was insensible before he reached the water. HIS ARM TORN OFF. Terrible Accident to a Little Boy at Creston. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.} Creston, la., July 24.—Carl Schofield, an eleven-year-old son of J. ll. Schofield, of this city, while playing in the Pearl mills last evening was caught in a belt running one hundred revolutions to the minute and had his left arm torn off near the shoulder. The boy managed to get loose and ran for a doctor leaving his arm behind him on the floor. Amputation at the shoulder was successfully performed and the boy will recover. DES MOINES SELECTED. The First Brigade I. N. G. Will Hold Its Encampment at the Capital. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, July 24.—It has been practically settled that Des Moines will be the place of holding the first brigade camp, which will be the last week in August. This will be a large meeting of the Iowa National Guards. The brigade is composed of the second, third and fifth regiments. Theregimentof United States regulars stationed at Omaha together with a band and full line of regimental officers will participate. A POPULAR MAN. A Xewapaper Man's Appointment Meets Witn General Approval. [Special to the Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, July 24.—E. D. Chassell, of the Le Mars Sentinel, who has been selected by tho state central committee as its secretary, is well known and extremely popular here. Mr. Chassell is a shrewd and experienced young politician of activity, intelligence and fidelity to the party. In 1888 he was elected as the second assistant secretary of the senate, and so well did he do his work and so popular did he become that last winter he could have had the position of secretary of the senate without a struggle, but loyalty to Mr. Cochran, to whom he had promised his support, prevented in his mind accepting what his friends tendered. He is one of the most promising young republicans in the party and the day is not far distant when he will receive much greater recognition than that just tendered him. this morning and hah been running in full blast ever since. It is expected that quite a number of Burlington tennis fiends will be down on Field Day prepared to swoop things, but we would suggest to brother Furgeson who has'the matter in charge that he bring his influence to bear on the management to have the court levelled, and put into some kind of shape, preparatory to that event. A HORSEY PLACE. OUT FOR ANTI-MONOPOLY. The Nebraska Republican State Convention at Lincoln.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Independence, la., July 24.—This, the home of Allerton and birth place of Axtell, is getting to be quite a horsey place. The new horseshoe track built recently by Mr. Williams is considered quite speedy, and, as a result, horse meu from all parts of the state are arriving with their string of horses both for general training and to get in shape for the August races. Among those already on the ground are five Adrian Wilkes trotters from Waterloo, four colt from West Union and seven from the Highland stock farm at Dubuque. Among them are Rhoderick Dhu, Manager, Argon and Keno F, Metmont and Bloomfield. Serious Head End Collision. Boone, July 24.j-The “Quaker Oats” train from Cedar Rapids had a head end collision on Moingona hill, eight miles west of here, at 8;30 yesterday morning. Two engines were pulling it up the hill and were struck by a fast train coming down. The three engines were badly demoralized, the head one of the oats train being crushed between the other two and exploding. Only one car was damaged. Some sheep were killed on the stock train and two stock cars loaded with empty beer kegs were smashed to kindling. The men saved themselves by jumping. The track was cleared for the passenger trains in about seven hours. A DES MOINES WIFE BEATER. A Bold Bobber Captured. Dubuque, July 24.—The burglar who yesterday entered the residence of Milton D. Howe, deputy United States collector, and with a loaded revolver demanded money of Mrs. Howe, was captured yesterday in a brewery and was fully identified by the lady. She turned the keys on him after he had effected an entrance, but he escaped through an open window before the officers arrived on the scene. He gives his name as George Rider. Union County Republicans. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Cheston, la., July 24.—The republican county convention met here to-day, all the precincts in the county being represented. Dr. J. W. Lander, of Afton, was elected chairman and H. W. Lewis, of Creston, secretary. C. E. Stewart, of Creston, was renominated for recorder; C. H. Thomas, of Crowell, for clerk, and James G. Buff, of Creston, for attorney. Lincoln, Neb., July 24.—It was two o'clock this morning before the committee on resolutions of the republican state convention made its report. After being read, it was adopted. The platform reiterates the principles enunciated in the successive national republican platforms from 1856 to 1888, endorses President Harrison’s administration, approves the national legislation on the silver question, denounces trusts, endorses the disability pension bill, and declares in favor of a service pension; demands honest elections and favors the Australian ballot as a means thereto; opposes land monopoly, recognizes the right of labor to organize, favors the control of railroads by legislation, demands the enactment of laws defining the liability of employers for injuries sustained by workmen, demands just taxation of corporate property, a reduction of freight and passenger rates, the establishment of a system of postal telegraph, and favors the enactment of more stringent usury laws. A resolution endowing prohibition was tabled and the platform is silent on that question. Tho convention finally adjourned at ten o'clock this morning. Before adjourning the following ticket was nominated:    Governor, L. D. Rich ards; secretary of state, J. C. Allen, of Red Willow; auditor, Thomas H. Benton, of Dodge; treasurer, Captain J. E. Hill, of Gage: attorney general, H. H. Hastings, of Saline; land commissioner. George H. Humphrey, of Custer; state superintendent, A. K. Gawdy, of Webster. MINNESOTA REPUBLICANS. had filed charges against General.Brooke for conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, which had been forwarded to the war department. This will no doubt induce charges against General Kautz, if it has not already been done, and it is not very improbable that one of the largest military courts known to the army will be the outcome, or that one or the other of the officers mentioned will be relieved from duty in the department. It is clear that General Brooke has been made the instrument by which the most prominent candidate (General A. V. Kant/.) for the next vacancy of brigadier general may be placed out of the way of a few very ambitions men. General Kantz was one of the most gallant soldiers of the war, and tins attempt to injure his chances for well merited and long deferred promotion is severely commented on by military men here and elsewhere.

Paris, July 24.—The Siecle and Figaro to-day publish an alleged interview with Whitelaw Reid, the American minister, which makes him denounce the McKinley bill as a measure opposed to civilization and which, further, represents him as declaring it was improbable the citizens of the United States would long endure the tariffs, and that the increasing difficulties of commerce would imperil the success of the Chicago exhibition. Reid authorizes an explicit denial of the truth of the Interview. He authorized nobody to speak on the subject in his name. The secretary of the American legation denied tin* r**s;>on*i-bility for the statement made. THE G. A. R. ENCAMPMENT. Dropped Dead. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Altoona, July 24.—R. J. Perdue, a prominent and highly respected citizen, suddenly dropped dead of apoplexy today. It will be remembered a brother of his lost his life in the same manner about a year ago at the same place. TWENTY RAFTERS DROWNED. A Baft Cut Adrift by a Miscreant Goes Over the Ottawa Rapids. Montreal, July 24.—A dispatch from Pembroke, eighty-six miles above Ottawa on the upper Ottawa river, says that two ’ ys ago some miscreant cut the rope holding a raft of logs to the bank, on I: iwenty-two raftsmen were stopping over night.

No trace of Qie bodies has been found. The Incorrigible Brute Arrested and Fined Without Effect. Des Moines, July 24.—A distressing case was brought to the notice of Police Judge Eggleston Tuesday morning. The parties in the case were not strangers to the court, the principal being John Rimes, charged with assault and battery, preferred by his wife. He entered the court carrying a baby. Both were rather noisy during tho trial, often breaking out into denials and denunciations in language that was anything but suited to conversation between man and wife. Rimes frequently called his wife a liar, and she returned the compliment with an occasional warm epithet. Rimes was convicted and fined and ordered committed to jail until the fine was paid. He stormed around the room, carrying the baby, and swore he would not pay any fine or go to jail. He was finally quieted and concluded to liquidate, going to a bank for the money and still holding on to the baby. Returning he laid the baby on the table, paid his fine and departed. In about live minutes information was brought to the marshal that Rimes was again beating his wife. The officer went to their wretched hovel near by, which is anything but a home, and found Mrs. Rimes lying on the floor and her liege lord walking about the room carrying the baby and swearing at his wife in a terrible manner. The woman refused to file further information and the unhappy couple were left to their fate. They are both young, the girl not more than seventeen. They have been before the court repeatedly, the wife in most cases being the complainant. Rimes has paid several fines and served light sentences for the same offense. SHENANDOAH COMMENCEMENT.

FROM MOULTON. BLUFF PARK BUDGET. Yesterday’s Doings at the Popular River Resort—The Literary Exercises. [Correspondence of The Hawk-Eye.] Bluff Park, July 24.—The weather has been all that the most fastidious could ask for during the last two days, and the cityites who have been seeking spiritual and physical recreation have been making the most of it. The meetings have been progressing without a break, and the various exercises have proved very entertaining. This after noon Capt. Evans, of Ottumwa, gave a very interesting and instructive lecture on the “Mound Builders.” Capt. Evans is a very fine student of archaeology, and advances some peculiar but well-founded theories as to the origin of this race of people, and showed himself well acquainted with the subject. Wednesday and this morning were delivered two sermons on Sacred Biography, by Rev. Hart, of Hannibal, Missouri, and Rev. H. V.

A great deal of interest is being aroused over the declamatory contest which takes place this evening, and a programe of which appeared in to-day’s Hawk-Eye. The rivalry between the favorites and the field is increasing as the hour approaches and the natives who are thrown upon their own resources to such a large ex tent, for amusement and pleasure, find nothing better or more interesting to talk about; and so the approaching contest becomes the theme of universal conversation.

London, July 24.—Whatever may l>e the result of the crisis in the Balkans some decisive step must soon bo taken. Sir William A. White, the British embassador to Turkey, is now hurryiqd to Constantinople as fast as express trains can carry him, with Lord Salisbury's advice to the porte as to the course it should pursue, both as to Russia's and Bulgaria's demands. Sir William came here post haste, was closeted with Lord Salisbury for several hours and started on the return journey on the first available train. All this indicates that the crisis in Hie Balkans has arrived at a critical stage. The general opinion among those best informed on eastern affairs is that the last Russian demand on Turkey for the payment of the war indemnity was only made after all military preparations had been prepared for crossing the Armenian frontier and seizing enough of the territory of that province to make an equivalent. The Bulgarian difficulty is equally pressing. Stambouloff. finding himself assailed on aff sides and his position fast becoming untenable, had no resource but to appeal to the religious feelings of the Bulgarians and their hatred of the Turks. He demanded the recognition of Prince Ferdinand, who had run away to Vienna, and the control by the Bulgarian patriarch of all clerical appointments in Macedonia, where tile christian population is mainly Greek. Some decisive action by the porte may be looked for within a few days after White’s return to Constantinople. Important negotiations have been going on for some time between France and England relative to the Anglo-German agreement and the complicated African questions which it ha* raised. Although they are not eoncluded there is general belief iii parliamentary circles that the main features of an agreement have been settled and that Fram e has the best of the bargain. M. Ribot. the French foreign minister, is rapidly rising in the estimation of European diplomatists, and it is conceded that he has made the most of his opportunity and proved himself a match for the veteran Salisbury. The Englishman wanted to make the negotiation* cover the Newfoundland dispute and the Egyptian trouble, so as to rid himself of all difficulties with France at one stroke. Ribot would not listen to this and managed to confine the discussion to central and eastern Africa and to Madagascar, leaving Newfoundland and Egypt open for further adjustment. He got pratically all he wanted. France will have a free hand in the territories worked by th* Niger and the Gambia and the rich regions around Lake Tehod, and and her nominal authority at least will be acknowledged in Madagascar. England really loses nothing by all this, whiff France will have the formal sanction of a treaty for claim* heretofore resting on very imperfect authority. In the mean time the Arab and tho negro irregulars in the service of France are fastening her hold on the new territories. There seems to be no longer mu reason to doubt that a pear** has been patched up between Lord Randolph Churchill and the Salisbury ministr. The conservative papers speak in term* of the highest praise of his -peech at the Conservatl.e club last :ght. From the tone of tb'dr comments . ;_my fairly be inferred that the chorus of approval is inspired; and thi* supposition is strengthened by a statement in the Chronicle to the effect that it is learned that a strong movement is in progress to restore Lord Randolph to official life. All these indications tally with the rumors that have been afloat recently concerning Lord Randolph'* improved status in the party. There is no doubt that he will prove a valuable addition to the conservative strength on the government benches. Sir Henry James. Lord Hart ington, and even Joseph Chamberlain. who personally dislikes Churchill, have been working hard to effect a reconciliatioh. Their chief obstacle was the per*onal antipathy of Salisbury and his nephew. Balfour, to Churchill, but that appears to have been overcome. The child opposition to Lord Randolph's return to the cabinet now comes from his quondam friend and adviser. Louis J. Jennings, who keeps cabling to America that no reconciliation is possible. Churchill's acceptance of a cabinet position will, it is understood, involve sweep ing changes the government’s Irish policy. Th*- decision of Chief Baron Pallas, of the Irish exchequer, lias dealt the government a severe blow. He *aid simply that shopkeeper* were justified in refusing to serve obnoxious people if they considered t hat so doing would hurt their business. Balfour's whole policy on Inland is founded on the theory that th* shopkeeper who refuses to sell to a boycotted person commits a criminal a* He must endeavor to secure a reversal of* the chief baron’* decision by th*- court of queen’s bench if he does not wish to see the utter collapse of the whole coercion regime. Richard Pallas, the chief baron. is one of the ablest lawyers, if not the very ablest, in Ireland. He began life as a moderate nationalist, and is believed to privately wish success lo the Parnell movement. Satisfactory Agreement* Reached and Six Thousand Laborer* Will Go to Worh To- Day.

About six thousand laborers will return to work to-morrow. AN INDIAN DANCE iboree at Attempt to Defeat General Kautz’ Chances for Promatton. Chicago, July 24.—For a long time there has been considerable discontent and friction throughout the military department of the Platte, evidently brought about by the management from headquarters, which is not as smooth as might be, and which seems not to spring from the quality expected to be found in an army officer. There is no doubt some reason for more or less dissatisfaction but just what induces it no one seems willing to say. The last unpleasant feature strikes higher than usual and is likely to give more trouble than is perhaps anticipated, and results in considerable gossip. It seems the department commander invited some Information from General Kautz relating to his post. The information was given and returned to General Kautz with an indorsement to the effect he had made statements not in accordance with the facts, whereupon the tatter asked for a redress of his grievance, and by reply was placed in arrest, thus 'shutting off the avenues for further application for correction. It is said General Kautz THE GUATEMALAN WAR. The Pulpit and the Stage. Rev. F. M.

Conflicting Reports of Battles— Mexico’** Attitude. City of Mexico, July 24.—Advices have been received from Guatemala to the effect that Ezeta's array attacked the Guatemalan's near th*: frontier of the Guatemala territory yesterday and that the Salvadorians were defeated and routed, leaving on the field many dead and wounded and three cannons, which Guatemalan's captured. Advices from San Salvador are entirely contrary. These dispatches report five separate victories for San Salvador's troops, who are said to have captured a large amount of booty. President Diaz has authorized the Associated Press correspondent to say that not a single Mexican soldier has been moved to the Guatemalan frontier: that there are only two regiments on tile entire line (the same number that has been stationed there for three years), and that mexico will observe, as she is now observing, the strictest neutrality. GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS. Editor Describes sn Indian Jai Ponca Agency. Mr. \V. W. Junkln, the senior proprietor of the Fairfield Ledger, who was appointed to an Indian agency by President Harrison, i> now ir. the indian territory in the performance of his duties. Writing to his paper from the Ponca agency Mr. Junkin describes an Italian d nice: I have described several dances, but these had their peculiarities, and I believe. dear reader, that you will be interbred in a description of them. One hundred or more tepees and half as many bowers were erected and constructed in the valley of the Salt Fork of the Arkansas aoout two mil* * north of the agency. When I arrived those engaged in th*- eagle dance were standing in a semi-circle stripped to the buff, but with leggings on and a sheet or blanket around the loins. They were broiling iii the sun. Each participant was dressed with paint of a color most admired by him. Some had black faces with white *[>ots. other* had yellow with black spot*, while other* had red with white splits, and some were variegated ike Joseph * historical coat without its •opposed cleanliness. About fifty were engaged in the dance. Each performer had a whistle made of a dog’s leg, to which wa- attached a bright colored feather. When th*: music of the drum, with its eight or ten strikers, began, the dancer* blew their whistle* and commenced a movement of the knees which brought th* body into motion, and up an*! down the heads bobbed for a l>ou t ten minutes. The feet were not elevated from the ground, but the up and down motion and the constant blowing of the dog whistles were pretty vigorous exercise, and the sides of some of the fat fellow* shook like the jelly that gather* around pickled pig’* feet. The heat finally became too intense and orders were given for the dancers to get into a t>ooth where the sun would not shine on them. but where the wind could not strike and th*- sweating process was increased. As borne of the dancers would become exhausted others would take their places. It was the most solemn and lugubrious performance I have witnessed for many a day; that is. solemn to the performers, for they were dancing for the Grea! Spirit to send rain. And I guesb they were ju*t a* earnest in this form of prayer a* would have been the Christian people in a church who had met to pray to pray to the Great Being ! to preserve them from some impending ! atomity. White Eagle said they were asking for rain and if they did not get it th.- failure would not be the result of their neglect to ask for it. During the rests between the dances of til*- men the squaws were diverting attention to themselves. They were having a scalp dance. About forty engaged in it, and I am sorry that several of them were school girls. They moved around in a circle and sang and laughed to th** music of the discordant drum. Thro old women appeared to have the most fun. One of them was Mrs. Standing Bear, a woman of large frame and pleasant fare. These three danced outside the circ!*-. Mrs. S. B. carried a! small pole to which was attached a Sioux scalp, and which she would elevate I and lower as ?h»* passed around the circle. One of the three was! a i immense fat woman weighing I about 30o pound*. She bad so much avoirdupois that she could not raise her feet from the ground and dance around like the more agile Mrs. S. B., but had to walk. Evert few steps she would] stop and shake her fat sides until she would almost go into convulsions and break in two. but she heid together, and] lo*’ not I: ug in weight except a gallon or] two of perspiration. A white lady! wanted to examine the scalp, but Mrs. S. Ii. -lid:    "I    wish    you    would    let    me] aion*-.” I believe Jeff. Davis once made I a similar remark. A> th** three viragoes! passed around the circle they would duck! their heads Iik♦ • passengers on a canal] boat when passing under a low bridge,] and a laugh would go forth from the! circle of dancers.
